Getting to Heathrow by Bus and Taxi

Being in such a central location, Heathrow Airport is easily accessible from anywhere in the country and should you choose to leave your car at home, you have a lot of options available to you.

There are bus services from everywhere in the UK to central London. These can be found through the internet or getting in contact with your local bus service depot. Depending on where you live in the UK will determine how long it will take you to get to London, but at least you can sit back, relax and enjoy the ride rather than getting frustrated driving yourself.

All the coaches offer comfortable seating, plenty of storage space for your luggage, ample leg room and most of them offer air conditioning. You will also find toilet facilities on the bus adding to the convenience of travelling this way.

Another benefit is that bus travel is affordable, costing around £35 from Birmingham and only £26 from Bournemouth.

Once you arrive in central London you are only a few miles from the airport itself and by now you may be tired of sharing your transport with a bunch of strangers. You can order a taxi with ease in London; there are hundreds of taxi companies that can transfer you to the airport.

The journey from central London to Heathrow shouldn’t take more than one hour and shouldn’t cost more than £70. There are also a number of taxi companies that work directly from the airport; these companies offer a set price to transfer you to the airport without any hidden fees.

You can enjoy your own private transport with a fully insured driver as you head to the airport to catch your flight with plenty of time to spare. A taxi is a nice way to finish your trip to the airport, if you think of how much money you saved using the coach service and not using your car and paying for parking, there is enough left over for a comfortable and quiet taxi ride.
